    This is a lap quilt I am making for someone who likes cats. The cheetah fabric will be the backing --or the front if she likes it better :)

    I used Rhonda's cut-down method to make the blocks -- 6" squares. I plan to put a 3" border in the green fabric with the small stars as cornerstones. I hope to do the borders tomorrow.

    It ain't perfect, but I am still very pleased with it so far.

    Thanks everyone for your kind comments... This is, so far, my best work. Hope to get the borders on tomorrow.

    Rhonda's cut down method really does help make everything fit together well.

    The shadow for the stars was serendipity... Wish I could claim credit. LOL!
